STEUBENVILLE, Ohio--The Steubenville teen rape trial started testimony for the third day on Friday.

Thursday, prosecutors focused on cell phone records during and after the alleged rape back in August.

A Jefferson County Sheriff's deputy testified about retrieving the cell phones from Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond, who were both 16 at the time.

A police captain also testified about finding two photos of a naked girl on a cell phone belonging to Mays.

Both Mays and Richmond are accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl at a series of back-to-school parties back in august.

A computer forensics specialist also testified that she retrieved text messages from Mays' phone regarding the alleged incident.

The specialist also testified that a photograph of a naked girl was shared via text message.

"At this point, we don't believe any of the photographs that have been put into evidence have been authenticated nor do they depict any sexual activity between our client and the person in question," said Brian Duncan, Mays' attorney.

On Wednesday, several teen witnesses testified for the prosecution that the 16-year-old girl was extremely drunk that night and was unable to say no.

However, another witness stated that though the girl appeared to be drunk, she knew what she was doing.

In fact, in cross-examination by Walter Madison, Richmond's attorney, another witness admitted that the tweets and social media posts she read after the fact framed her recollection of what happened.

The prosecution called another witness to the stand on Thursday, the best friend of Trent Mays.

The friend testified that he saw the victim and that she was so drunk that she was slurring her words and falling down.

That same friend testified he sent Mays a text stating, "You shouldn't have done it.  She was that hammered."

In cross-examination, the defense attorney for Ma'lik Richmond asked the witness that if what he had heard and read on social media framed his recollection of what had happened.

The witness admitted it had.

The prosecution is expected to call several more witnesses before the defense calls their witnesses.

No word if the victim will take the stand.
